Human Dignity

The Catholic social teaching principle of Human Dignity is about understanding that each of us is made in God's image, which means every person has an innate human dignity - te tapu o te tangata - that no one can take away.

Caritas has focused on the Hutt Valley Benefit Service Trust's work in Upper Hutt for this video.

Resources related to this principle can be downloaded by following the link at the bottom of the page.

The resources include a poster, a 10-minute Reflection, Study and Discussion Guide.
